About Children’s Hospital Urgent Care


East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, in partnership with TeamHealth, opened Knoxville’s first pediatric urgent care center in 2018. Children’s Hospital Urgent Care is a convenient option for pediatric walk-in treatment when your doctor’s office is closed. Our centers are dedicated to supporting families and their physicians by delivering immediate medical attention to children, from newborns through 21 years of age. As partners with your child’s physician, we provide timely reports sent directly to your doctor’s office to ensure continuity of care.
